The Father issues this command throughout Scripture and to us today. We obeyed when we said that brave yes to leave family and familiarity and walk into the unknown.
But sometimes it also means leaving, whether we want to or not. Unrest, sickness, burnout, these can thrust us from our second home and leave us wandering in body and spirit. Perhaps the choice to leave is ours for the good of our kids or our own hearts, yet the ache is still there.
Exodus. Do you resonate with the story of the Israelite pilgrims in the wilderness as they followed the promise of a land to call their own? Do you feel like a rootless wanderer right where you are, longing for a place that truly feels like home?
In the midst of that hard journey, we want to circle back this week to the hope of our God who never leaves us. He is right there with us each step of the way. Let’s remind each other this week of the joy we have in him when everything feels uncertain. Bring your questions, your desert-wandering stories, and the words of truth you cling to this week.
